Faux silk infinity scarf – the perfect 15 minute sewing project for your weekend since it doesn’t take long. Oh, and this fabric looks like little globes and that is perfect for the Rio Olympics – go Team Canada!!!

I saw the Opening Ceremonies yesterday and they were so beautiful. My favourite part about watching the Opening Ceremonies is seeing all uniforms for the different nations. Not only are they unique to each country, but they give a sense of country pride. I love it.

Okay, let’s get started on this faux silk infinity scarf.

What You Need

  • Faux silk 60×24
  • Serger
  • Matching thread
  • Pins
  • Hand needle

First, gather your fabric. I’m using the same technique I used in my basic infinity scarf tutorial from a few years ago – it’s easy to follow. The difference here is that this scarf is bigger. 24 inches wide and 60 inches long.

Cut the fabric to size and fold like a hot dog with right sides together and serge along the long edge.

Then, turn the scarf right side out and match up the seams, right sides together. Ensure the scarf isn’t twisted when you’re matching up the ends. Serge as far as you can and you’ll be left with a 1 inch hole.

Pin the hole and slip stitch closed – then you’ll be done.
